I got an interesting reader email last week about a mileage possibility. Without putting all the info on the Google Web crawler.
We have two non-continental states in the US.
Both of them have airlines named after them.
One is my wife’s favorite state to visit and vacation.
We are talking about the one Sarah’s from.
This airline has reciprocal frequent flier mileage agreements with both a Skyteam member and a OneWorld member.
It also has a credit card with a bank with three words in its name.
My reader tells me he regularly applies for the plastic signature card we are all so fond of, without including his MP number in his application.
When he receives his new membership card and credit card and completes his minimum spend, his points are awarded. He sometimes merges his accounts, but you obviously don’t have to if you have a use for just that amount of frequent flier miles.
Anybody else care to confirm? I just got these miles for the first time and am always looking for more miles, particularly if I can convert them to hotel stays. I’m not that familiar with this program, but if you will send me your thoughts I’ll: Ketch All I Kan.
Ju Know who I am talking about?
